The beer pours black in color. There is about an inch of thick, foamy, nearly creamy head, tan in color. The aroma has a tangy mineral note, char, very light coffee and dark chocolate. The taste puts the char first, amps up the chocolate, still light coffee, with the mineral note becoming a smaller presence. The beer drinks easy, with light carbonation, and a mild, charred bitterness on the finish. It is just a tad bit watery for its flavor profile.
